Transcript of Filtration
Filtration is a technique used either to remove solid impurities from an organic solution or to isolate an organic solid.
The two types of filtration commonly used in organic chemistry laboratories are gravity filtration and vacuum or suction filtration.
Gravity filtration is the method of choice to remove solid impurities from an organic liquid. This method is used to remove solids from a specified product.
Vacuum or Suction filtration is a technique for separating a solid product from a solvent or liquid reaction mixture. The mixture of solid and liquid is poured through a filter paper in a Buchner funnel. The solid is trapped by the filter and the liquid is drawn through the funnel into the flask below by a vacuum.
